During a CNN panel discussion about the alt-right and the conference in Washington this weekend, and Donald Trump’s reaction to it, things took a decidedly serious turn when one of the panelists dropped the n-word.
With Trump supporter Paris Dennard, who is black, on the panel, Charles Kaiser started making a case that Donald Trump’s campaign was based on racism and ant-Semitism.
Commenting on Trump’s chief strategist Steve Bannon, Kaiser claimed Bannon regularly uses the n-word.
“If you don’t want to support the alt-right, don’t choose as a White House counselor a man who uses the word n—er,” Kaiser said.
After he finished his point, anchor Brooke Baldwin chastised him for using the word.
‘Charles, just hang on a second. appreciate you going through all of this but please don’t use the n-word on my show,” Baldwin noted.
Dennard later said he appreciated Baldwin saying not to use the word as he found it very offensive. After a few more minutes, an emotional Baldwin cut the interview short and commented about what had occurred.
